BDX Optics System Course

SIG Sauer Academy recently announced its newest training course, the Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) Optics System Course. The BDX Optics System Course centers around the SIG Sauer Electro-Optics BDX Optics System.

SIG Sauer Academy BDX Optics System Course

The SIG BDX comprises a fully integrated rangefinder and riflescope system. The system utilizes Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth. It uses Android or iOS devices to calculate and illuminate the exact holdover dot for the perfect shot, according to SIG Sauer. Billed as an intuitive system, the shooter simply connects the dot.

The BDX Optics System Course explores the practical understanding of the complete BDX system and its application for hunting, training, and competition for the precision scoped rifle shooter. Students in this one-day course will learn how to operate the already easy-to-use BDX system. They will also apply their skills on the range with the BDX system shooting multiple targets at varying distances.

A complete BDX system will be provided to all class participants for hands-on-use and training.

“Rangefinding riflescopes of the past have had two major shortcomings: they are either big, boxy and heavy, or extremely expensive,” said Andy York, president of the Sig Sauer Electro-Optics division, when SIG first released the BDX. “The revolutionary and affordable BDX system packs advanced ballistics technology into a simple platform that looks just like the rangefinder and riflescope that every hunter is using today. It is extremely simple to use; range a target, put the digital ballistic holdover dot on target, pull the trigger, impact.  Incredibly accurate and extremely simple, just connect the dot.”

The first offering of the Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) Optics System Operator is June 18, 2019. To register and review the course outline for Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) Optics System, or review the comprehensive course offering for SIG SAUER Academy visit
